Why See a Neuromuscular Dentist?

Many people do not realize the benefit of seeing a neuromuscular dentist. You may want to visit one if you suffer from:
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Cracked or worn teeth
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Neck, shoulder or back pain
  • Jaw soreness or a jaw that “locks”
  • Problems chewing
  • Ringing in the ears

These are just a few symptoms of TMD or temporomandibular joint disorder. Many people suffer from a jaw that is out of alignment and doesn’t fit correctly when the mouth moves or is in its closed, resting position. A neuromuscular dentist can help you if you suffer from any of these problems.

A neuromuscular dentist can help the immediate concern of the pain TMD causes by using modern techniques to help relax the jaw and the muscles surrounding the jaw. Look at it as a massage for your jaw. Once the pain has subsided, we can further assess your condition and use methods to stabilize your bite, re-align the jaw, and help you maintain the results. Once the condition has been corrected, it is important to follow the certain instructions to maintain the results.

If you have any of these symptoms, do not hesitate to call or email our office. We serve people suffering from migraines and other TMD related symptoms in the Chicago area. By assessing your symptoms, we can treat your condition with a plan that is properly developed for your needs.
